Error logs
« on: January 11, 2007, 05:12:26 pm »
Every time I fire up CodeBlocks I get a little yellow window saying "Errors logged" and it proceeds to tell me "Review them in the logs..."  So where the heck are the logs?  I've dug through every directory and can't seem to find any log file that is actually changed on todays date.

The log mentioned in this yellow box is not any log file but it is the "Code::Blocks Debug" tab in the Messages-pane. If it is not visible then you should "right-click" on a tab and select this tab in the submenu "Show/hide".
Real Programmers don't comment their code. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.

OK, and within this pane I get:

[15:54:34.521]: Initializing plugins...


This doesn't seem to be an error.

This probably isn't the only message there...

That pop-up is indeed confusing. Every once in a while someone comes asking where are they exactly, and I had to search for them too..

On that day, that was the only message I saw - perhaps I didn't scroll up?  Today, I have the following lines flagged in red:

[10:39:13.343]: ERROR: Plugin resource not found: CBProfiler.zip
[10:39:13.534]: ERROR: Plugin resource not found: compilergcc.zip
[10:39:13.614]: ERROR: Plugin resource not found: debuggergdb.zip
[10:39:13.764]: ERROR: Plugin resource not found: pluginwizard.zip
[10:39:13.814]: ERROR: Plugin resource not found: projectwizard.zip


CBProfiler.zip and projectwizard.zip are not present in my nightly build (3455).  The other files are also not present, but there is a logical substitute for each.  I have on my system compiler_gcc.zip, debugger_gdb.zip, and plugin_wizard.zip.

Why would the two missing files not have been included?  And, can I simply rename the three with underscores to match what is being sought?

I tried renaming the three files with underscores and now I get the following errors instead:

[10:45:10.158]: ERROR: No plugin manifest file in resource: C:\Program Files\CodeBlocksNightly\share\codeblocks\compilergcc.zip
[10:45:10.239]: ERROR: No plugin manifest file in resource: C:\Program Files\CodeBlocksNightly\share\codeblocks\debuggergdb.zip
[10:45:10.389]: ERROR: No plugin manifest file in resource: C:\Program Files\CodeBlocksNightly\share\codeblocks\pluginwizard.zip

Yes, indeed it did.  I also used the Search feature (as I know you all wish people would) and found numerous discussions about various files.  Way down the list was a thread of this sort that said to remove the DLL/ZIP files and to install Nightlys in a fresh directory.  I am adequately spanked.
